How to format your references using the Austrian Studies citation style

This is a short guide how to format citations and the bibliography in a manuscript for Austrian Studies. For a complete guide how to prepare your manuscript refer to the journal's instructions to authors.

Using reference management software

Typically you don't format your citations and bibliography by hand. The easiest way is to use a reference manager:

PaperpileThe citation style is built in and you can choose it in Settings > Citation Style or Paperpile > Citation Style in Google Docs.
EndNoteFind the style here: output styles overview
Mendeley, Zotero, Papers, and othersThe style is either built in or you can download a CSL file that is supported by most references management programs.
BibTeXBibTeX syles are usually part of a LaTeX template. Check the instructions to authors if the publisher offers a LaTeX template for this journal.

Journal articles

Those examples are references to articles in scholarly journals and how they are supposed to appear in your bibliography.

Not all journals organize their published articles in volumes and issues, so these fields are optional. Some electronic journals do not provide a page range, but instead list an article identifier. In a case like this it's safe to use the article identifier instead of the page range.

A journal article with 1 author
Finlay, Bland J., ‘Global Dispersal of Free-Living Microbial Eukaryote Species’, Science (New York, N.Y.), 296.5570 (2002), 1061–63
A journal article with 2 authors
Shaked, Yeala, and Andrew Rose, ‘Microbiology. Seas of Superoxide’, Science (New York, N.Y.), 340.6137 (2013), 1176–77
A journal article with 3 authors
Ghodbane, Ramzi, Didier Raoult, and Michel Drancourt, ‘Dramatic Reduction of Culture Time of Mycobacterium Tuberculosis’, Scientific Reports, 4 (2014), 4236
A journal article with 7 or more authors
Wöhri, Annemarie B., Gergely Katona, Linda C. Johansson, Emelie Fritz, Erik Malmerberg, Magnus Andersson, and others, ‘Light-Induced Structural Changes in a Photosynthetic Reaction Center Caught by Laue Diffraction’, Science (New York, N.Y.), 328.5978 (2010), 630–33

Books and book chapters

Here are examples of references for authored and edited books as well as book chapters.

An authored book
Acharya, Viral V., Thomas F. Cooley, Matthew Richardson, and Ingo Walter, Regulating Wall Street (Hoboken, NJ: John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2010)
An edited book
Kwok-bun, Chan, Mobile Chinese Entrepreneurs, ed. by Chan Wai-wan, International Series on Consumer Science, 1st edn (New York, NY: Springer, 2011)
A chapter in an edited book
Åström, Joachim, Anna Carola Freschi, and Stig Montin, ‘E-Forums: Refreshing the Representative Relationship?’, in Renewal in European Local Democracies: Puzzles, Dilemmas and Options, ed. by Linze Schaap and Harry Daemen (Wiesbaden: VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften, 2012), pp. 79–98

Web sites

Sometimes references to web sites should appear directly in the text rather than in the bibliography. Refer to the Instructions to authors for Austrian Studies.

Blog post
O`Callaghan, Jonathan, ‘Pebble Theory Of Planet Formation Could Explain Why Earth Is Bigger Than Mars’, IFLScience (IFLScience, 2015) <https://www.iflscience.com/space/pebble-theory-planet-formation-could-explain-why-earth-bigger-mars/> [accessed 30 October 2018]

Reports

This example shows the general structure used for government reports, technical reports, and scientific reports. If you can't locate the report number then it might be better to cite the report as a book. For reports it is usually not individual people that are credited as authors, but a governmental department or agency like "U. S. Food and Drug Administration" or "National Cancer Institute".

Government report
Government Accountability Office, Improved Reporting Needed on National Aeronautics and Space Administration Projects (Washington, DC: U.S. Government Printing Office, 27 January 1977)

Theses and dissertations

Theses including Ph.D. dissertations, Master's theses or Bachelor theses follow the basic format outlined below.

Doctoral dissertation
Gonzales, Daniela Sofia, ‘Identifying Factors and Quantifying Their Impact on Transportation Costs of Pre-Processes Biomass’ (unpublished Doctoral dissertation, Mississippi State University, 2012)

News paper articles

Unlike scholarly journals, news papers do not usually have a volume and issue number. Instead, the full date and page number is required for a correct reference.

New York Times article
St. John Kelly, Erin, ‘Patrons Root for the Return of the “Cheers” of Clinton Street’, New York Times, 8 March 1998, p. 147

In-text citations

References should be cited in the text by name and year in parentheses:

This sentence cites one reference Bland J. Finlay, ‘Global Dispersal of Free-Living Microbial Eukaryote Species’, Science (New York, N.Y.), 296.5570 (2002), 1061–63 <https://doi.org/10.1126/science.1070710>..
This sentence cites two references Bland J. Finlay, ‘Global Dispersal of Free-Living Microbial Eukaryote Species’, Science (New York, N.Y.), 296.5570 (2002), 1061–63 <https://doi.org/10.1126/science.1070710>; Yeala Shaked and Andrew Rose, ‘Microbiology. Seas of Superoxide’, Science (New York, N.Y.), 340.6137 (2013), 1176–77..

Here are examples of in-text citations with multiple authors:

  • Two authors: Yeala Shaked and Andrew Rose, ‘Microbiology. Seas of Superoxide’, Science (New York, N.Y.), 340.6137 (2013), 1176–77.
  • Three authors: Ramzi Ghodbane, Didier Raoult, and Michel Drancourt, ‘Dramatic Reduction of Culture Time of Mycobacterium Tuberculosis’, Scientific Reports, 4 (2014), 4236.
  • 4 or more authors: Annemarie B. Wöhri and others, ‘Light-Induced Structural Changes in a Photosynthetic Reaction Center Caught by Laue Diffraction’, Science (New York, N.Y.), 328.5978 (2010), 630–33.
